Domestic Engineer

Earlier this week someone asked me what I do for work. I am a Domestic Engineer. It is a full time job looking after Naomi and keeping up with the housework. I have a great admiration for all those women who are able to work full time at a job outside of the home and still look after their housework and children. My hats off to you!
This week has been filled with working at home. I am always amazed that there is so much to do just to keep the house running. My days were filled with laundry, cleaning, and dishes. I always feel better when I know that the house is all clean and the laundry is done.
I tackled a big project this week. I decided to make my own baby food. I was not sure how difficult it would be, but I gave it a try. It turned out to be easier than I thought, thanks to the Magic Bullet that I received as a shower gift from my mother-in-law. Thanks Mom! I decided to start out with Sweet Potato, Peas, Carrots, Blueberries, Pears, and Peaches. I boiled the veggies and fruit and pureed them with a bit of water in the Bullet. Then I poured it into ice cube trays and froze them overnight. They all turned out great! Here is a picture of the finished product.

However I am so blessed that my day is not all work. I am so lucky to be Naomi's Mama. It makes everything I do worth it. Naomi is growing up so much every day! I can't believe that my little baby girl is already over 6 months old. She is rolling around on the floor, picking up toys, and sitting up all by herself. I can't get enough of her little chuckle and her beautiful smile. She is the light of my day!

Hi Lorraine... thanks for commenting on my blog! :) Did you and I meet at one point? I think I remember being at your house with Esther once and your mom got a beesting and she is allergic... ring a bell? If not, nevermind... haha!

How do you know Rosanna? I've linked to her blog from my friend Leanne's way back in May and I've been feeling inspired by her as I read about her painful journey.

Being a mom is hard work, and it sounds like you're doing a great job. Good for you for making your own baby food... I think I'll do the same when I'm a mom. Avoid all those awful preservatives and pesticides!!!

Anyways, there's always room for more commentors on my blog! Welcome!

the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false
friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, or a garden patch... to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This
is to have succeeded!" - Emerson
